7:03 am
morning." happy friday. charlie rose is off so john dickerson of "face the nation" is here. >> thanks for having me. >> great to have you here. after spending weeks using what many call violent and inflammatory rhetoric on the campaign trail, this morning, donald trump finds his own threats. a threatening letter containing a suspicious white powder was sent to the manhattan home of eric trump, one of the candidate's sons. fbi, secret service and nypd are all investigating. >> eric trump's wife opened the letter at their home in the trump parc east building south of central park and that is where don dahler is right now. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the letter arrived here at eric trump's luxury apartment in manhattan. last night, thursday night, the police swarmed this area after laura trump opened an envelope and noticed it contained white poued powder.
7:04 am
the letter contained an explicit threat saying if donald trump does not withdrawal from the presidential election, his campaign stopped, that his family would be harmed. 32-year-old eric trump is donald trump's second oldest son. he has been a fixture on the campaign trail and often appearing behind his father at events. incidentally is not the first threat to trump this week. earlier this week the hacker group known as anonymous issued a threat saying they are going to declare total war fare against trump towards statements he has made about banning muslims and deporting mexicans and they say they will launch a cyberattack on his online entities on april 1st which, of course is april fool's day. ted cruz's presidential campaign is getting support. lindsey graham and marco rubio
7:05 am
were afraid of what donald trump candidacy could do to their party. major garrett is in washington to look at this. good morning, major. >> reporter: good morning. ad hoc and so far aimless to stop donald trump efforts continues and another one in downtown washington and another in palm beach, florida with the biggest republican donors. so far all more talk than action. in this vacuum, ted cruz has emerged as the least likely establishment favorite to topple trump. >> clearly, ted's positions on issues are conservative. >> reporter: returning subdued and defeated to capitol hill after ending his white house bid, marco rubio did not endorse ted cruz but said he is the only alternative. >> hopefully, there is time to prevent a trump nomination which i think would fracture the party. >> reporter: senator lindsey graham agreed intensifying his criticism of donald trump. >> i don't think his campaign is
7:06 am
think a disaster for our party. >> reporter: graham offered cruz a halting endorsement. >> i'm dong doing a fund-raiser for ted cruz. >> reporter: trump aspired reversal from just three weeks ago. >> if you kill ted cruz on the floor of the senate and the trial is in the senate, nobody can convict you. >> reporter: john kasich, the last man standing between a trump versus cruz primary attacked trump's comments that riots could break out at a contested convention. >> for somebody running for president of the united states, to say, to even imply that there could be violence if he doesn't get his way. >> the primaries head west to utah and arizona where cruz is rolling out new ads he hopes will rally anti-trump voters. >> ted has kept those promises with that trust that he has
7:07 am
we need to unite behind ted cruz. >> reporter: the voice in that ad is mike lee, an ally of cruz and both lee and cruz have operated outside of the gop establishment in washington. now they are pulling it in to their anti-trump world. >> major, thank you. president obama is not endorsing a candidate yet but this morning he appears to favor hillary clinton. "the new york times" reports the president told democratic donors at a private fund-raiser in texas, quote, that senator bernie sanders of vermont was nearing the point of which -- at which his campaign against hillary clinton would end and that the party must soon come together to back her. sanders responded to those comments last night. >> we have received more votes from people under 30 than secretary clinton and donald trump combined. many states were winning the votes of people under 45. that is the future of america and that is the future of the democratic party, so to suggest we don't fight this out to the end would be, i think, a very bad mistake.
7:08 am
president's comments were meant to stress that success in november will depend on the ability of the democratic party to come together behind the nominee and he did not indicate or specify a preference in the race. the vermont senator is also offering a critique of the president's supreme court pick. sanders says he strongly supports a nomination of merrick garland but if he wins the election in november he said he would ask the president to withdraw the name. he wants a more progressive justice. this morning, republicans remain yuted united in their refusal to consider garland. jan crawford is on capitol hill. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. sanders may have his concerns but there is no evidence that garland would be anything other than a liberal justice, and as he started his visits here on capitol hill, other democrats gave him a warm welcome. garland's first meetings were friendly. starting with a top democrat on the judiciary committee who stepped up the pressure on
7:09 am
>> i think they owe it to their constituents and to the country and more importantly to the constitution. >> most republican doors are closed. although judiciary committee chairman chuck grassley left open a crack. >> it's a case of an hour meeting with judge garland. you know, it's pretty hard to say no, to that. if i can meet with a dictator in uganda, i can surely meet with a decent person in america. >> the responsible course of action is to avoid the political theater. >> the american people deserve to be heard in their voice heated. >> reporter: in a conference call with supporters, president obama said that issue was settled. the american people did have a say back in 2012 when they elected me president. >> the biggest challenge for the
7:10 am
keeping the attention of the american people. >> reporter: former judiciary committee chief counsel says to prevail the white house has to keep beating that drum. >> you have outside personalities as candidates. and there are going to be issues that will be come up, and, you know, i don't think the american people are going to be paying as much attention to the nomination of judge garland. >> reporter: now, garland also doesn't bring diversity so some groups on the left aren't all that fired up. but he would be a solid liberal vote and with his temperament and intellect, perhaps someone who could build consensus on a court of nine. >> the obama administration this morning is calling on north korea to calm tensions after a pair of new missile launches. pentagon confirms pyongyang fired two ballistic missiles overnight and that crashed into the sea. the launches comes day after president obama imposed new sanctions on the north. the u.s. clamped down his
7:11 am
nuclear tests earlier this year. federal investigators are investigating a lightning strike on an americanairlines flight that was flying from north carolina to laguardia airport when it was struck. >> there was a flash of light and big explosion. the plane dipped about a hundred feet. i don't know. it just felt like i was on a roller coaster. >> the plane diverted safely to new york's jfk airport. 59 on board and no one hurt. >> that is scary yu looking at it and we weren't there. powerful storms roll through texas leaving a trail of damage. that's the trail. hail up to the size of tennis balls pounded areas around dallas yesterday.
7:12 am
dozens of cars. chief weather caster lonnie quinn of wcbs is here in the studio. you know something big could be happening. he is tracking a potential nor'easter and targeting the northeast. i know when you're here, something is happening. >> i show up and it's bad news weather wise. start you off with a radar picture. lots of inclement weather out there. what you can't see from a radar signature is this big pool of cold air up around the northern great lakes. that pool of cold air will be dropping south into the northeast. at the same time, that this storm around wichita will get its act together and scoots to the gulf of mexico and if it travels up the coastline, we have a big storm on our hands. it's going to be a springtime if it goes further out to sea, not so much. here is what i want to share as of right now, three of the big four computer models are saying this is going to come
7:13 am
watch it develop. here it comes. it will be talking snow for the northeast and up into new england. how much snow are we looking at? mixing along the coast and rain and sleet and mix inside with snow later. we are talking maybe 1 to 3 inches on the coastal koelvetcoastline and i-95, 3 to 6 and dark blue color hudson valley outside to new york city and up into new england, 6, 10 inches or more of snow for some spots out there. the ski areas are loving something like this. been a tough winter for them. everybody else you get the snow. it will be around for a hot second because it's going to melt very quickly and be 50 and 60 by the time we get into next week. >> get a couple of runs in. michigan governor rick snyder is back in flint this morning to meet with officials about the city's water crisis. he testified yesterday before a house panel. some members of congress are calling for snyder and the head
7:14 am
lead contamination. adriana diaz is in washington with the contentious hearing. >> reporter: good morning. the first time lawmakers got to grill the two high ranking officials involved what has become a full-fledged health emergency. republicans put most of the blame on president obama's epa chief and most democrats zeroed in on the michigan governor. >> as soon as i knew there was a lead issue, we did blood testing and irk -- >> deny ability only works when it's plausible. >> reporter: nearly four hours on thursday. >> no! just listen for a second! >> reporter: lawmakers took turns blasting michigan governor rick snyder and epa chief mccarthy. >> it wasn't until january of the next year you actually did something. that is the fundamental problem! don't look around like you're mystified! >> reporter: the city tapped into the flint river for drinking water in april 2014 to save money. but the improperly treated water caused lead to leech from old pipes.
7:15 am
pumping river water, most of the city's 8,000 lead pipes have not been replaced. >> i should have asked tougher questions and i should have done more! >> reporter: at the hearing, governor snyder apologized and blame failures on all levels of government. >> inefficient, ineffective and unaccountable bureaucrats at the epa allowed this disaster to continue unnelson. >> reporter: mccarthy insisted her agency followed the lead of michigan environmental officials. >> from day one the state provided our regional office with confusing, incomplete, and absolutely incorrect information. >> you need to take some responsibility because you screwed up! you messed up a hundred thousand people's lives! >> reporter: flint residents - traveled by the busload to attend the hearing. >> i found a flyer in my mailbox saying that pregnant women and people 55 and over should not drink this water. >> reporter: wakes said she miscarried in 2015 and it was not clear it was linked to the
7:16 am
>> no amount of testify or even apologies can bring my babies back or take the lead out of everyone's body! someone needs to be held accountable. >> reporter: in a statement to the detroit news, governor snyder said that he voluntarily testified to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again. he says he has no plans to resign. as for epa administrator mccarthy, the white house says it supports her. >> what a hearing. thank you. the american who defected from isis in iraq is opening up how he became disillusioned with jihad. it involves a woman. from there, khweis went to turkey and a contact helped him join isis. elizabeth palmer is in erbil, iraq. that is near where sources detained khweis. >> reporter: khweis left the

7:18 am
>> our daily life was basically prayer, eating, and learning about the religion for about eight hours. >> reporter: as for why he did it? well, khweis is a little vague on that point. >> at the time i made a decision straight. >> reporter: so he did what so many others have done. he found a people smuggler to get him out. but instead of arriving safely on the turkish border and freedom, he has found himself in custody and in deep trouble. the department of justice has already said it's planning to file charges against him in the united states and here inner bill, -- erbil, he has been interviewed by the fbi. the first day of march madness featured a wild string of upsets.

7:39 am
although he is as likely as i am to do to pass up a buffet. for both of these candidates, it is necessary for them to say i'm not perfect, i've made mistakes, this is what i got wrong and this is what i learned from it, but not a candidate is likely to do it. so you're going to see this kind of anger and frustration with both of them for months to come. >> yeah. thanks, frank. what is your sense, frank, of the percentages of each party where people feel this way? is it more in the republican party or democrat? which is it? >> i have thought there was more with the republicans but i'm surprised. it took us less than 24 hours to recruit this group because so many people would choose none of the above if they had that option. in fact, i hope that cbs on their next poll does it, because you're going to find it's between 15% and 20% electorate prefer neither of them. people who don't trust hillary clinton and on the republican

they get all of the bus depot hours and they see he has violated his curfew eight times. >> this is a dumb mistake by him, right? and his parents for letting him do this? >> well, it may be a really dumb mistake and it may be this whole idea of the arrogance of the young man. one of the things that i find interesting when you look at the paper work is the girlfriend's story is curiously missing from the paper work. >> what does that tell you? >> what it tells me is that either his lawyers are trying to give the best possible light to why he was gone and, by the way, he did call pretrial services. he got permission for these trips. the thing is he says the trip were to see legal counsel and they don't want to name the legal counsel, and he says that the trips were for educational purposes. he had the -- the curfew is interesting.
8:06 am
so he says that he cannot pursue online education and have meetings with professors unless he gets permission to extend his hours. well, we know what the judge is going to think about that. >> what is the -- what happens if his bail is revoked? what happens then? >> well, he got a gift, okay? he got bail, pending this appeal being decided. this is a gift. so instead of obeying the rules, he decides he has his own rules. so what could happen? he could get his bail revoked, he is going in. the judge could keep the conditions the same and then he has to bay the curfew or the judge could do something in the middle by modifying the conditions. if i'm that judge, i'm pretty angry now, because the arrogance that we saw, according to, i think, the judge at the trial in the sentencing, is what we see today. >> interesting he would talk to a reporter knowing it's a reporter and reveal that information.
